You're most likely aware of the fact that PX625 batteries are available, 
but that the currently available version is a 1.5v cell with a decreasing 
voltage over time. The original PX625 was 1.35v and had a stable output 
until exhauseted when it plummeted to zero.

The Wein zinc air cell most closely mimics the original battery in its 
output and that is what is offered by Fargo Enterprises, Inc. at:  

The other fargo web site is devoted to a printer manufacturer.

I have bought a new type of legal PX-625 type of batteries from Fargo that work as well as the old type. They are a bit 
expensive, but OTH they last more than 2 years.
I am also using the CRIS adapter on 3 MR4 meters without any problems.

As long as these products can be bought, I would never rebuild a M5 for 
lots of $$...
